Borondo and Agostino Iacurci at St+ART India 2016

Borondo and Agostino Iacurci at St+ART India 2016

St+art India is coming on strongly this year with their Delhi festival of Street Artists and related talents meeting at the Inland Container Depot (ICD) and creating works on shipping containers. A walk-through installation that uses 100 shipping containers as canvasses and sculpture, approximately 25 national and international artists are painting here during the month of February.

Included in this years’ program are assorted walls in the newly created Lodhi Arts District which lies between Khanna Market and Meherchand Market. Now back in Rome, Italy after their visit to the ongoing events, Lorenzo Gallitto and Giorgio Base of Blind Eye Factory tell us, “India was incredible! We really enjoyed it! “

The guys also share with BSA readers these fresh new exclusive photos of walls by their countrymen, Agostino Iacurci and Gonzalo Borondo. Distinctly different styles, they are two of the real talents on the scene whose work we continue to keep our eye on.

Our Moment of Need: Herakut in Rome

Our Moment of Need: Herakut in Rome

Herakut is in Rome for their current exhibition with Galeria Varsi, “Santa Miseria”. A quote they use on the gallery wall is also repeated here on the exterior wall of a building for this new mural in Tor Pignattare . The duo like to collect personal stories and re-tell the moment they were relayed to them.

In this case a powerful sentiment, an observation that the human response to the suffering of another is often immediate and even overwhelming – but not always, and not sustained. We reflect on this observation drawn from another and appreciate that Herakut brings it to the fore.

“Each individual is portrayed with the exact gaze and breath of the instant in which they narrate their experiences to the artists. This powerful moment of interaction gives viewers the chance to feel the strength of those who in life have learned to move on, to overcome their difficulties and to start living again,” says the show description.

The texts on the mural wall read;

“In our moment of need we rely on the family of humans. I wished we could remember these family bonds in our moments strength”

“Nei nostri momenti di bisogno ci affidiamo alle persone come famiglia, sarebbe bello se potessimo ricordarci di questi legami anche nei momenti di forza”.

~Herakut

BSA Special Feature: Shepard Fairey: Natural Springs.

Jersey City hosted Shepard Fairey a couple of weeks ago at MANA Contemporary and naturally he chose this huge wall with a high profile to host his image entitled Natural Springs. If you are going to do a subtle lambasting of the oil economy where better than a location visible to the millions of drivers traveling between Jersey City and Manhattan via the Holland Tunnel.

 

Shepard Fairey: A Steady Drumbeat Inside and Out on BSA

West One: Future Communication

This promo for a show with West One without words calls for the rise of a third way (or fourth or fifth) that draws connection to graffiti of our earliest days of mark-making and movements of today employing symbol, shape, line to communicate in a monochromatic mode.

 

Monica Canilao: Alchemy. Detroit

As Detroit is settled by the artists you see the movement here from other cities has reached the former Motor City in this group show featuring the spirit of D.I.Y and re-imagining our empty neglected spaces as stages for aesthetic creation. This long video advertises an upcoming group show with Monica Canilao at the center describing a vision of alchemy.

Herakut in Rome by Blindeye Factory

Promoting their gallery show in Rome the german duo Herakut created this wall in Tor Pignattare forte  STREET HEART PROJECT, curated by Marta Gargiulo, Massimo Scrocca and Marco Gallotta.

“In our moment of need we rely on the family of humans. I wished we could remember these family bonds in our moments strength”
Herakut.

“Nei nostri momenti di bisogno ci affidiamo alle persone come famiglia, sarebbe bello se potessimo ricordarci di questi legami anche nei momenti di forza”. Herakut.

BSA Special Feature: 1010 Creates a Crater in Paris

And you thought New York had potholes? Be careful in Paris!

Mario Mankey: The World Is Not Over Part 2

Debuting here, the newest video from Mario Mankey. See him knock out a wall inside Berlin’s former Institute of Anatomy.
The creepiness of this place is possibly the inspiration for the title: “The World Is Not Over: I’m Still Alive”.

Giorgio Bartocci from Blindeye Factory

Interview with Specter at Vantage Point

Happy we were able to bring this guy with us to Berlin in March, and very happy to hear this excellent interview that James and Tom did with him while he was there!

Etnik’s Geometric Forms Popping Off in Rome

Furthering his examination of geometric forms interacting in a multi-dimensional field, Etnik creates this new mural in a Roman neighborhood in full view from your terrace. The cube forms emanate forward from a central gravity mass toward the viewer, popping off the enormous sky-blue canvas.
